Anne Valente came to town

Anne Valente came to Wright State for a reading this past Wednesday, and by god, she was as charming as her fiction. I love it when I like writers as much as I like their writing. She was gracious with her time, attentive to students and their questions, and read with authority and grace.

She lives in Cincinnati and I hope we keep in touch. What a treat to keep meeting such awesome local authors.

Huge thanks to Jane Blakelock for the wonderful pics!

 

Some great readings

Anne Valente is coming to Wright State for a reading next semester and I couldn’t be more excited. Her first book By Light We Knew Our Names is full of fun and inventive stories. You can read my review of it over at Heavy Feather Review.
